When drafted, Steelers fans knew that he was something special. Heath Miller has always played with heart. As an all around tight end, Heath Miller has been quietly one of the best tight ends in the NFL.

This may be good for the Steelers, actually, it may be great. If Heath is not known as well as Jason Witten, Antonio Gates, Chris Cooley, or Kellen Winslow, he may realize his best bet is to stick around in Pittsburgh.

Miller can block, he can catch, and he is a leader. Heath Miller seems like the type of player who doesn't care about a record contract. I believe Heath loves being a Steeler, and may take any contract they offer to him (as long as it's fair).

With that said, there are so many impending free agents that Pittsburgh should be concentrating on signing three of them over the next few months. If Heath is truly a Pittsburgh Steeler at heart, he will sign easily. The same goes for a player like Hines Ward, he will always be a Steeler at heart, and will probably sign a fair contract.

That still leaves a lot of upcoming free agents left unsigned. If they know what it  means to be a Pittsburgh Steeler, they will also resign. This year looks promising because we only lost a few free agents, next off season could be brutal.
